Traditional Quilt Blocks Get a Fresh Look

A Checkerboard Border is the Perfect Finishing Touch!
Three traditional blocks combine in new ways to create this beautiful quilt. The unique pattern plus the fabrics selected by the designer result in a quilt with a bit of a primitive country feel.
The charcoal gray print and the checkerboard border give the quilt a fresh look while retaining traditional charm. It will be stunning on a bed anywhere in your home.
We love the colors used by the designer and can imagine it made up in other colors as well. It will be fun to play with colors and print styles while selecting fabrics for your own unique version.
The finished quilt, by designer Jennifer Thomas, is 80 ½” × 96 ½”.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
